RAMSEY DISCUSSES SPORTS AND SPORTING Lively Baseball Season 4 Promised on Pacific Coast Next Summer-Britts Foul Causes Comment. NRPCI.AL 10 111E IN1T.R MOt'NTAIl. Seattle, Wash., March 14.-The de, mination of the l'acific Nurthweast leagI e to invade the. two leading cities of CpII fornia has created consternation in tle outlaw camp. The "Kernal" and '"Ik " who are backing the pirates in this wity "solely for the love of the sport," are ,-l ready hunting for cover, and the batle has hardly begun. By mid-csason i he frost will bit apparent on teCir pedal x tremities. Tlhey arc now ,leng;aged' in a frantic f fort to hat.r a street run through the rounds tusedl by I)tgdale last year. It they fail in this the war is just as good a-s over in this city. It Itugdale can !:eep his old grondls for this year there Kill he nothing to tIh hbht. If they force hilll out Ito Ih Ilslain struct grounds they aill staind a cha.ice' it divide the patronage II il hint oll week days becaunse the new grounds N hIich thI y arc butldling are mnore cenltrally locatedl. It is not at all <cit;it, however, that the oltI groulnds will Ie c t uip this year. The "Kernal" on Deck. The "Kcr;nal" is hatnting the city counr t'il roomi rvery Mo)ndlay night trying to. induce .tite of Ithe miilers to, take hold of the ,.atter and hale a -trt orde'red throigh the groundl-, lit -, far his if. forrts Ihave tll tlllnscciT'full. T'here is a hit of un rilten history in this connllctioll that is interesting. The outtlans went to lac"b In urlh, the head i.f the Seattll I': <tric ciompany, which otins he groutnds usedt by i)ugd:Ile last yeair, andl asked him if the would close ap the tpark if they wauld build a n.w park. There was nothing said at that time abouit putting an outlaw teamn ill this city, and it was understood that the park was to be rented to Dugdale, and these men were to build it simply as an investment, NIr. Furth so understood the ma;tter and agreed to close up the old park. With this promise the conspirators Ielased the ground and then sprung the outlaw teanm, hoping thereby to crowd I)ugdale off the lasehall tap. Since then. however, Mr. I:rtlh hats bt shown that l)utgdale had brel, promised the use of the grounds for threec ye.ars. which would allow him to use the park this year. Though the lease Is not in writing, It has always been un derstood that it was to run for three years, and Dugdale made his contracts with advertisers on that basis. Mr. Furth has become convinced that Dugdale has a good claim on the grounds, and because deception was practiced in getting him to promise to close up the old park he now wants to withdraw that promise and allow Dugdale to stay where he is. The pirates are trying to hold him to his word. This matter will be settled up this week, and if Dugdale is allowed to re main in the old park he will have every thing his own way. A majority of the city council is opposed to putting a street through the grounds for this year at least, so that everything looks rosy for the fat boy. Dugdale Goes to 'Frisco. Aflfairs being in sucht good shape int Seattle, Dugdale left the first of the week for San Francisco to help McCloskey and I.ucas get things moving in the two new cities of the league. McCloskey sent for him and, though Dugdale has a lot of work to do at home, he took the first train for the South. These three expe rienced baseball men will cause "Uncle llenry" Ilarris many sleepless nights this year. Already Harris has lost his confi dent tone, for lie knows that he will have the fight of his life to hold his own in San Francisco, where he is anything but popular with the sporting public, \ hen Dugdale and Lucas get sack from C'alifornia a meeting will be held ini Tacoma to adopt the playing schedule and arrange for the opening of the sea son. The fact that Butte, Helena, Spo kane, Tacoma, Seattle and Portland stood solidly behind McCloskey and Lucas in the fight helped materially in making the expansion of the league a success, and has convinced the public that this fight is to be a hard-oil finish, so far as the regular teams are concerned, Jimmy Britt's Foul, nlimmly Britt losing his fight to Jack O'Keete in Portland on a foul left a bad taste in the mouths of the sports In this rction. A large delegation attended from Seattle, and they backed Britt to a man. Jimmy was winning in a walk when the low punch was delivered, and ,YKeefe would have received the finish Ing touch in another round at the latest. l his makes about the fourth fight that has been decided by physicians in these parts lately, and the sports are getting ilisgusted. A. tighter already whipped % ill get a punch in the body and will usik to the canvass holding himself muck a,.wr lo wn than the blow landed. There is always a doctor handy to say that he .is struck in the groin, and the man Sihi should walk off with the winning end I.t the purse has to ble satisfied with a i, c.iion, against hint attd with a stain Ipn his record as a foul fighter. Not a .11,1 on the Seattle contintgent tlinks that Itiiit fouled I 'Keefe. The knockout blow .s a left hook to the wind and O'Keefe a.is carried to his corner in a fainting ii lihtijn. There is some talk of a re tuirni match. Iut it is inot likely to occur, tJr the fight dejmotuttrated that the ment tire nit in the sane class. Britt is too clever and strong for ()'Keefe and was ianllaing all the way. lie came out of the light without a scratch, but with a tcry bail opinton of Jack Grant as a it, , re. By the way. Grantt owns an in t-ie.t in the club which pulled off the fhit. and it was the club that brought i)'Keefe out from Chicago to meet Britt. ii coitrse this had nothling to do with the decision, but it causes talk. Inlterest is awaketning in the race meet which is to be pulled off here in June. .\Asttrances have been received that a numtllber of California hor enten will brintg their batlgtails here for the meet. This is to be a running meet pure atnd simple, and the harntess horses will have to wait until next fall for their chance. The track opened last year is being worked on all the time and will be in splendid shape this year. There is some fear that the anti-ganmling law piassed by the leg islature will interfere with the racing, but the horsemen do not think it can lie stretched to cover that pouilt. They are going right ahead with their preparations anjd it is hoped to have a numlber of Mon taina horses enter the field. The purses hung up are substantial in size. RAMSEY.

THEY SAY MOSE FIGHTS FOUL ltni.tructor Murphy of the Froadwsay gymnasiumn and matchnmaker for the club, has received manlty anonymous letters ask ing him not to match .\lose .al:ontise again under the atispices of the club. Some claim he is a foul tighter and that he gets too many decisiotns from referees when defeat is coning his way. In speaking of such letters Murphy said: "I agree with many of the writers, as I think I.aFontise was pretty well done for when Referee Nolan gave him the decision. ,Iibbs was stronger at the end than in the early rounds and, in mty upinion, would have won. "I will put I.aFontise on again, but lie mlust meet the man I name atnd let mte referee. I will match hint with Rubc Ferns, and I'll assure the public that Ferns will get the decision if he is the better man. Should Mose begin to foul, then tlt Ferns do the same thing. I would referee the ClifTord-Ilerrera go were it not for the fact that Clifford is my pupil, atnd I could not expect Bishop and Herrera to accept me. "I have another pupil, Jack Richards, who Is going to make his mark. He is the strongest lightweight fighter in Butte and can stand all kinds of punishment. He is game to the core, and there is ito qiuestion about his having the punch." Knox Spring hats and Banister's finC shoes in the latest styles at Hlennessy's. Store open tonight until to.
